Are Some of Syria’s Chemical Weapons from Iraq?

The U.S. Congress was supposed to begin voting on President Barak Obama's call for the U.S. to surgically bomb Syria by targeting only its large cache of chemical weapons stored throughout the country. Even though the president delivered a major, televised speech to the nation this evening about it, Americans remained very strongly against it, and it appeared that a majority of the members of Congress were too. But at the last moment, Russia raised an alternative that caused the president today … [Read more...]

Jeane Dixon

One year during the late 1960s, I was playing on PGA Tour in the Oklahoma City Open. I read in the newspaper that Jeane Dixon was making a rare public appearance and that it would be there in Oklahoma City that weekend. She had a syndicated newspaper column about astrology and was becoming one of America’s foremost astrologers and psychics in the twentieth century. She had even advised U.S. presidents, including FDR and, later, Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan.Jeane Dixon was scheduled to s … [Read more...]

Jesus Had To Be Made Like His Brothers To Die For The Sins Of All Us Others

The biggest theological controversy in the history of the church has been whether or not Jesus is God. The institutional church doctrine of the Trinity—that God is three co-equal and co-eternal Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—emerged later as a subset of this controversy to escape the charge of worshipping two Gods: the Father and Jesus. Leading Trinitarian theologians who have written on these subjects in the past century list between five and nine New Testament texts which they think pro … [Read more...]

Almost Persuaded

One year early in my PGA Tour career, I was playing in the Atlanta Classic at Atlanta Country Club and paired with a player whose name I will not divulge. He was a successful Tour player with whom I had gotten along with just fine.In those days, Billy Casper was one of the top four players on the PGA Tour along with Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, and Gary Player. Casper was often bothered by allergies. I could relate to that because I was too. The media frequently badgered Billy about it and … [Read more...]

As Mediator Between God and Man, How Can Trinis Say He Is a God-Man?

Some church fathers reckoned Jesus as a “God-man,” and Christians have been doing so ever since. Emil Brunner repeatedly does so in his classic defense of traditional Christology--The Mediator: A Study of the Central Doctrine of the Christian Faith.Those who call Jesus “the God-man” mean that God literally came down to earth and became the man, Jesus Christ, which they also call “the incarnation,” and they often cite 1 Timothy 2.5 as their sole means of biblical support. Paul writes therein, … [Read more...]

Karsten Solheim (Part 3)

One of my favorite stories about Karsten Solheim is his philosophy about the golf swing. He believed that the more a golfer could keep the club face square to the target line through the impact zone, the straighter his or her shots would fly. Actually, that was good thinking. But it’s how Karsten tried to accomplish it that seemed strange to most golfers. When he swung the club, after he made ball contact he would keep his hands stiff and his arms straight on his follow through. The result was t … [Read more...]

Jesus Doesn’t Have Two Natures and Wills. That’s Anthropology on Steriod Pills!

Almost all Christians believe that Jesus of Nazareth was and is God. And they generally believe that God is omniscient, thus knowing everything, including all about the future. However, Jesus told his apostles that he would be killed, rise from the dead, ascend to heaven, and someday return to earth, and he added that he did not know the day when he would return. If Jesus was God, how could he not have known when he would return, especially since God the Father knew it?I was a Trinitarian … [Read more...]

More Turmoil in the Lawless Northern Sinai Peninsula

Turmoil in Egypt's lawless Northern Sinai Peninsula continues to increase. To recount, late last year Islamic militants instigated a shootout in the Northern Sinai near the borders of Israel, the Gaza Strip, and the Sinai, killing 16 Egyptian soldiers. And early this year, there, militants abducted 7 Egyptian security personnel.Recently, on August 9 Israel conducted a drone strike into the Northern Sinai, having the apparent approval of the Egyptian military, which resulted in 6 Islamic … [Read more...]
